  Career Counseling Society at the Lahore campus of FAST - NU invited Mr Asad Umar, Ex-President and CEO of Engro Corp and currently Member National Assembly. As a highly popular and accomplished business leader, his talk on "achieving excellence in career" was keenly anticipated by students in particular.

During his talk, Mr Asad Umar deliberated his perception of excellence in career by sharing in particular his experiences from the early days of his career as a young professional. He also reflected on the importance of 'passion' in achieving excellence. He encouraged the students to consider entrepreneurship as a career track. According to Mr Asad Umar, one must consider his or her time as an investment in career. Students should try to develop a certain focus early on in their career and once they work with an organization, they should seriously consider the long-term opportunities rather than switching for short-term goals. In the Q&A session, he replied to a large number of questions from a keen audience in his unique and candid style. At the end of session, Mr Asad Umar was presented with a momento by the director, Dr Zafar Iqbal on behalf of university
